Be it enacted by the Council as follows:                     

Section 1. Chapter 1 of title 16-a of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 16-529 to read as follows:

                     § 16-529 Number of Employees. a. Definitions. For the purposes of this section, the term “trade waste hauling vehicle” means any motor vehicle that is owned or operated by an entity that is required to be licensed or registered by the commission pursuant to section 16-505 and that is operated in the city for collection or removal of trade waste.

b. An entity required to be licensed or registered by the commission pursuant to section 16-505, shall assign a minimum of three employees, or the maximum number of employees for such trade waste hauling vehicle to meet its capacity, including the driver, to physically accompany each trade waste hauling vehicle of such entity when such vehicle is in operation for the purpose of hauling trade waste in the city.

c. Any owner or operator of a trade waste hauling vehicle that violates any provision of this section shall be liable for a civil penalty of 5,000 dollars per vehicle that is in violation, returnable to the office of administrative trials and hearings. Each notice of violation shall contain an order of the chair of the commission directing the respondent to correct the condition constituting the violation and to file with the commission electronically, or in such other manner as the commission shall authorize, a certification that the condition has been corrected within 30 days from the date of such order.
